If you do, do you have a hard time losing weight? I have it and I have been the same weight for almost 3yrs and it seems no matter what I do the weight just stays put. I need to lose about 80lbs to be considered a healthy weight. Does anyone know anything I could try to help me lose weight or improve my thyroid function? Any ideas or experiences would be helpful. Thanks in advance.....

I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism when I was 18. It is rare for a young person to have it, I am fully aware of your concerns. I am 5 foot 1 and usually weigh around 115-120. I ballooned to 150 pounds and 10 jean sizes. It was quite a journey to find my diagnosis, most doctors wouldn't consider thyroid with a person of my age group. I was put on levothroid and the pounds began to shed off of me. I was back to normal in about 3 months. Once they got me on the correct dosage I was no longer tired and I felt completely back to normal. If i don't take my pills I can tell a huge difference after about a week. Make sure your doctors have you on a high enough dosage. Good Luck!
